80th Anniversary / Mission Statement

Written by Central on Thursday, September 18, 2014

In 2009 we celebrated Central’s 75th year in business. Five short years later (in fact, this week) it is our 80th year! What better way to mark our anniversary than to communicate our updated company mission!

We have been crafting this language for almost a year, asking for input, and identifying our core values and long-term objectives. It is now signed and approved by our family principals and board of directors.  The version you see in this blog post highlights key words that were important for us to include in our mission.

Happy 80th Central!
